IDEAS: inclusion, diversity, equity, accessibility, social safety

Students and employees of Fontys Academy of the Arts have a fundamental right to feel safe. Everyone has the right to be treated with respect and dignity. When a student or employee feels that there is unacceptable behaviour (bullying, sexually transgressive behaviour, discrimination, intimidation, racism, aggression or violence), this must be responded to appropriately. In short, they feel seen and heard according to their wishes. Here is an overview of various websites and internal portals with information about support options when confronted with unacceptable behaviour. The topic of “social safety” receives ample structural attention.
